A forest is a piece of land with many trees. Many animals need forests to live and survive. Forests are very important and grow in many places around the world. They are an ecosystem which includes many plants and animals.

Temperature and rainfall are the two most important things for forests. Many places are too cold or too dry for them. Forests can exist from the equator to near the polar regions, but different climates have different kinds of forests. In cold climates conifers dominate, but in temperate zone and tropical climates forests are mainly made up of flowering plants. Different rainfall also makes different kinds of forest. No forests exist in deserts, just a few trees in places where their roots can get at some underground water.

The three major forest biomes are coniferous forests, deciduous forests, and tropical rain forests.

Millions of species of plants and animals live in the world’s tropical forests. Life in the rain forest exists at different levels or layers in the trees. Each layer has a name, such as ’emergent’, ‘canopy’, ‘understory’, and ‘forest floor. Animal life is found on all levels.
